Psalms 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Look at the first word: surely. David didn’t say, “Maybe goodness and mercy shall follow me.” Or “Possibly goodness and mercy shall follow me.” Or “I have a hunch that goodness and mercy shall follow me.” David could have used one of those phrases. But he didn’t. He believed in a sure God, who makes sure promises and provides a sure foundation. David would have loved the words of one of his great-great-grandsons, the apostle James. He described God as the one ”with whom there is never the slightest variation or shadow of inconsistency” (James 1:17 Phillips).

Our moods may shift, but God’s doesn’t.
Our minds may change, but God’s doesn’t.
Our devotion may falter, but God’s never does.
Even if we are faithless, he is faithful,
for he cannot betray himself (2 Timothy 2:13).
He is a sure God.

James 1:17 – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

2 Timothy 2:13  If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

A friend’s comment on Today’s thought:

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.
